The plains Indians relied on the buffalo as a source of food. They relied on horses as a source of transportation. They also used the horses to hunt the buffalo.
they prepare with buffalo an d horse
why were horses important to the western plains indians
The horse, buffalo, and the dog were important to plains tribes.
Many Western Plains Indians relied heavily on bison. They used everything on bison including their skin, hair, and meat in order to survive.
The horse was important for their nomadic lifestyle. it allowed them to travel on the plains. It also helped them keep up with the buffalo and hunt them. It was seen as bravery to steal horses from other tribes.
The horse provided a means of transportation for the Plains people, and the buffalo provided many things for these people, including food, clothing, and shelter.
The horse enabled the plains Indians to hunt buffalo more easily, resulting in a surplus of food. They also helped the nomads to move around more efficiently.
Before the plains indians had horses they hunted buffalo by killing foxes and wrapping up in the fox skin. They did this because the buffalo wasn't scared of the fox due to the fact that it was much bigger than foxes so the plains indians approached them and took them out with their arrows. hope this helped.. -Jay Marsh
The buffalo was more important to the western plains indians due to many factors. The native americans relied on the buffalo for many resources, from food to basic needs of soap and hairbrushes. However, the horses only made journeys for the americans easier and quicker, they didnt develop an easier way of general life for them
The most important resource the plains Indians got from the Europeans was the horse (which had become extinct in the western hemisphere by 10,000 b.c.e.) Cortes reintroduced the horse to the Americans after the 16th century. By the 18th century, the plains Indians had made them a large part of their culture. Mounted Indians could run down buffalo instead of staking them on foot. They could move and fight more effectively, as well as traveling with more possessions and larger tepees.
While the buffalo was the most important resource, the second most important resource became the horse.
The Plains Indians used pretty much all of the buffalo when they killed it. (Meat for eating, hide for covering, bones for building, tendons for rope) When the buffalo was killed off by the railroaders and settlers and pioneers, the Indians lost all the resources given by the buffalo. Because the buffalo was so useful, the Indians had depended on it and when they were killed, they lost their entire way of life.The horse is kinda funky. The horse is fairly new to America, with the first horses being brought by the Spaniards in the conquest of Cortez. The horse is incredibly strong, ridiculously fast, and a weapon in its own right through trampling. This superiority in battle made the Plains Indians pretty much invincible in their homeland (Not so much in trees, but really really good in flat spots) They also used horses when they died in much the same way they used the buffalo, making them a valuable resource and a formidable weapon.
The horse for mobility, buffalo for food, shelter, clothing and tools made of bone or horn.
